You changed my life for the better (poem)

That special meeting

You changed my life for the better

The changes came so very slowly at the start,
Just a tiny crack appearing within my heart.
Before that moment, just a stillness lived within,
Then you appeared and caused those changes to begin.

I had shut the world out, turning myself away,
Even when I met you, my life was still so grey.
Yet, when you pass me by, you left something behind,
Just a little seed that my heart was sure to find.

Without my awareness, that seed started to grow,
Until the crack made in my heart started to show.
The changes had begun! there was no holding back,
And I began to see just what my life did lack.

Now it’s time to open up, for my life to change,
Time to take a look and see what to rearrange.
Remove the grey sadness, let love come shining through,
Fill my life with happiness, all because of you.

You can’t help everyone, but… (poem)

There is always some way of helping

You can’t help everyone, but…

You can’t help everyone,
But you can help out someone,
There is always some kindness you can give.
You can’t help all those in need,
But you can do a good deed,
You can show them they have a life to live.

Kindness comes in what we do,
Helping others to get through,
Showing them that someone really does care.
We can guide them on their road,
Help them to carry their load,
Encourage them and say ‘you’re getting there’.

Understanding can be shown,
When others face the unknown,
A torch we can hold to give them some light.
Help them face another day,
Pointing out a better way,
That there’s a brighter tomorrow in sight.

A bit of love from your heart,
Can help their lives to restart,
Giving them the strength to keep on going.
And when you decide to rest,
Knowing you have done your best,
In your heart, your love will still be glowing.

A Crack of Forgiveness (poem)

Open up your forgiveness

A Crack of Forgiveness

A crack of forgiveness,
Just a glimpse shining through.
A chance to readdress,
The pain living within you.

A chance to open up,
Unlock forgiveness’s door.
Retrieve forgiveness cup,
And hand it out once more.

A chance to bring healing,
To find where anger ends.
To once more start feeling,
That you can become friends.

A crack of forgiveness,
Can become a new sun.
Shining with hopefulness,
Against pain, you have won!

Please be at peace with me, my friend (poem)

Let’s become friends

Please be at peace with me, my friend

Please be at peace with me, my friend,
Even though strangers we may be.
Let our anger come to an end,
Let us set our harmony free.

Please come and sit with me, just here,
Let us spend time with each other.
Do not be afraid to come near,
Come, let us greet one another.

Please accept my hand of friendship,
Through the confusion of today.
From the cup of peace, let us sip,
Let our promises find a way.

Please talk to me about your ways,
Let me learn about how you live.
Let us talk of happier days,
With each other, learn to forgive.

Please now walk with me, by my side,
Let us find our way together.
Let understanding be our guide,
Let our peace remain forever.

Kindness, A user’s guide (poem)

Let kindness guide you

Kindness, a user’s guide

Within all of us, kindness can be found,
Just take a piece and add it to your day.
Keep it with you, wherever you are bound,
And let kindness guide you along your way.

So how can you find it when you are lost?
Can it be found amid uncertainty?
Know this, that kindness comes without a cost,
It is found all around, because it’s free.

Even within emptiness, kindness lives,
Even in confusion, kindness will grow,
Even in times of hardship, kindness gives,
The light of kindness is always on show.

Kindness can soon appear within a smile,
At a moment when someone is in need.
That tells them that their struggle is worthwhile,
That one day soon, their journey will succeed.

Kindness can be a hand that’s reaching out,
Or a gesture that says it is okay.
Kindness can restore hope that’s lost in doubt,
Use it to help others to find their way.

Kindness is found within a gentle voice,
Giving them encouragement to be strong.
Saying to them there is a better choice,
To not give up and just to carry on.

Kindness is a gift there for you to share,
That once given, may fade away from view.
Yet, kindness never leaves you standing there,
For kindness is still living within you.

Love is Living within Tomorrow (Poem)

Love is there

Love is Living within Tomorrow

Love is living within tomorrow,
Even if it’s not found in today.
Let yesterday keep all its sorrow,
Let tomorrow show you a new way.
In your heart, love is always beating,
Even in your moments of despair.
Even when you find life defeating,
In your heart, love is still beating there.

In your life, you feel love you are lacking,
There is not a trace of it to be found.
But your heart gives love all of its backing,
Encouraging your love to stand its ground.
Encouraging your love to rise up once more,
Letting love flow into every part,
Let your love open up tomorrow’s door,
For love is always found within your heart.

The bridge over the river (poem)

The life around a bridge

The bridge over the river

Under the bridge the river flows,
Next to where the old willow grows.
Upon its branch a robin sings,
A duck swims pass with her ducklings.
A swan glides by, calm and serene,
Beside her, two cygnets are seen.
Under the bridge they pass on through,
Off to seek their food somewhere new.
Upon a rock a toad sits there,
While fishes swim everywhere.

Over the bridge the people walk,
Up in the air flies a sparrowhawk.
Children stop on the bridge midway,
Deciding just where they should play.
Under the bridge from the hot sun,
They set up camp and have some fun.
Across the surface, stones they skim,
Before diving in for a swim.
At four o’clock, their games they pack,
Then over the bridge, they walk back.

A quiet spot of your own (poem)

A moment for yourself

A quiet spot of your own

A quiet spot far away from the crowd,
Just a quiet place where nothing’s too loud.
Somewhere your life can settle for a while,
Instead of a frown, recover a smile.
A place of calm where your tension eases,
Where your mind can drift to where it pleases.
Somewhere special, where your stress can depart,
A place where you time is ruled by your heart.

A quiet spot where you can take a rest,
To just sit back and see life at its best.
A chance for your inner spirit to renew,
Opening your eyes, enjoying the view.
Closing your eyes, reflecting within,
Letting the dreams of tomorrow begin.
And when from this spot, it’s time to depart,
Tuck a piece of it’s peace within your heart.

The playground awakens (poem)

Let the children play

The playground awakens

The playground stands empty, silent, and a little forlorn,
Waiting there for the sunrise to bring with it a new dawn.
Throughout the darkness of the night the playground has laid bare,
It’s swings and roundabouts, in stillness, have been resting there.
Some creatures of the night have travelled through it, once or twice,
A fox, two hedgehogs, and alongside its hedgerows, some mice.

The sun creeps above the horizon, chasing off the night,
On the top of the slide, it deposits dawns early light.
Sliding down it slowly, it reaches over to the swings.
On top of the climbing frame, a robin lands and sings.
A new day has begun, dawns sunlight spread everywhere,
Announcing to all the world that the playground is still there.

Its does not wait too long before the first children arrive,
Its swings and roundabouts, once more, become alive.
The sound of laughter breaks the silence the night left behind,
With the children racing around to see what they can find.
In the playing of their games, new friends they begin to make,
Fun and happiness are found, now the playground is awake.

Sweet love remembered (poem)

You are still with me

Sweet love remembered

The sun once rose upon us, so clear and bright,
A new dawn arrived, from life’s darkness came light.
Love was born, growing so deeply from within,
A world full of promise where our love would win.

Time spent together in the warmth of the sun,
Although if it did rain, life could still be fun.
A coffee that was shared just between us two,
A moment in time just there for me and you.

Laughter and joy we would find every day,
If some tears appeared, they soon faded away.
Walking barefoot together on the seashore,
Memories captured, and stored forever more.

Alas the sunset came and you had to go,
But although you are gone, your love I still know.
Sweet love remembered, kept safely in my heart,
Always a part of me, never to depart.
